I have a 2004 WR450, when the engine is turned off or dies it turns the starter back wards (you can hear it). This is causing the gear on the starter shaft to be grounded off. I am on my second starter. It has had this problem since it was new. Has any one else had this problem? I double checked the title and it is a 2004 not a 2003. The starter gear seams to be the only thing that is being damaged. For now I have removed the DAMPER ASSY and just kick start it since the starter Gear will no longer turn the DAMPER ASSY gear.
